Cooking Jewish in Westport

Michele Deitch of Westport enjoys a sampling of gefilte fish at the Congregation for Humanistic program on Jewish food.

How to recreate your grandmother’s recipe for kreplach when it calls for “a bissel” of this and that (Yiddish for “a little”) was one of the confounding questions discussed at a recent program on Jewish cooking held at the Congregation for Humanistic Judaism (CHJ) in Westport. “I tried to record a recipe from my grandmother, but getting measurements was a problem,” related one attendee.  “I said ‘Bubbe, can you give me a standard measurement I can use?’ ‘Try this’, she said…and she handed me a yarzheit glass!’ The cooking class, which included lots of good recipes, was part of the congregation’s adult ed program.
